Foreign Secretary on first official visit to Greece

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson described Greece as “an important partner for the UK”, as he arrived in Greece on a two-day visit for meetings with his counterpart Nikos Kotzias and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

“We work closely together on our joint security and defence objectives in the region and our shared goal of a Cyprus Settlement. As we prepare to leave the EU, I look forward to strengthening our historic ties,” said Johnson in a statement distributed by the Foreign Office.

The Foreign Office said that the Foreign Secretary is visiting Greece to underline the strength of the UK-Greece relationship and the bilateral cooperation on a wide range of areas including migration, organised crime and counter terrorism, the Cyprus News Agency reports.
